Another example of shortsighted abortion law - One person's lack of compassion does not equal another's comfort.
One person's lack of comprehension does not equal another's consent.

Abortion law would give fathers a say State legislators propose change; opponents blast bill as 'extreme',
Mike Hixenbaugh July 30, 2007

I would ONLY support such a law if the other laws made it a legal requirement of the "father" to support the woman financially during the pregnancy, and made a failure to pay for the support of the child after birth a zero tolerance jailable offense.

The problem remains that even with such extra conditions, if the father is not identified or is totally unknown (don't ask) the woman is then not granted the abortion.

This is the sort of stupidity we are fighting. This is why the Republicans cannot be allowed to win the White House again! EXTREME right wing Republicans say McCain is soft on abortion. Trust me, he's not nearly soft enough!

Just look at that requirement for when the father is unknown. The doc has to conduct a paternity test to figure out who has to give consent.

Nevermind how long that process would take, but even if it could be done lickety split, I'm not even sure you can conduct a paternity test on a fetus until it's too old to abort under Roe V Wade.
